Haggai (2)

Bible Reading: Haggai 2:1-9
Thursday 28 July 2016
God’s people started to rebuild the temple. But they were discouraged. Some people thought that this temple would never be as wonderful as the first temple. 

So God said to the governor, the high priest and all the people (verse 4b), “Don’t be discouraged! Continue this work, because I am with you!”

Several years ago I was preparing to go on a mission trip. I needed to raise money for my transportation and living expenses. I was excited because I knew that God wanted me to go on this trip. But I had a hard time raising enough money. I began to doubt that I should go on the trip.

Then the week before I had to leave, I received more than enough money. This experience helped me understand that God is always with me and will provide for me.

What are you facing today? Remember that God will be with you to strengthen and encourage you! —BH

Haggai 2:9 “And the Lord All-Powerful says that this last temple will be more beautiful than the first temple! And I will bring peace to this place! Remember, the Lord All-Powerful is saying these things!” 

PRAYER: God, thank You for always taking care of me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

I am deaf with C.I. - basic BSL, want to learn more. Go to Bridgwater and Weston Super Mare signing church. Have met Gill several times. I think this is a wonderful!! My kind friend Astrid sent me this from Bristol - she has cycled round the world in 2 years - a magical feat! I found life difficult when becoming deaf and decided to make it more `visible` by making BSL jewellery. I have sold some and donate to BSL bible translation, so it is lovely to have this and I will tell my friends about it. JN
